You have challenges.  Big challenges!


You don’t need advice.  You need measurable results! We start with two givens: 


Nothing works without a working leader.

Nothing sticks until it is in the culture. 


I have been consulting and delivering differentiating results to organizations of all sizes for the last 15 years. I don’t just reduce the pain or target isolated improvements.


I bring the full force of my experience in helping organizations to manage their business as a growing culture–leveraging my LEARN PLAN DO change management process.  

My areas of focus include:


Lean Transformations:  Most organizations have some sort of continuous improvement effort that is not meeting expectations in some significant ways. I have led dozens of lean transformations that have re-energized the organization – while leading to new levels of capability and results.


Culture Transformations:  Culture is one of the least understood and undermanaged elements in the leadership toolkit. Leveraging a Purpose-Process-People framework, we can more reliably assess, measure and build the necessary work culture. 

Leadership Development


I can say with great certainty that you do not have enough leadership capacity to meet your current challenges and aspirations.  I have helped organizations develop their leadership capabilities to support both their pipeline of succession planning – and the distributed leadership requirements that bring empowerment, capability, and accountability to all levels of the organization.


Getting Started


It all begins with a complimentary and consultative “white-board” session (usually two to three hours) where I learn about your unique challenge. Email me at to begin the process of creating meaningful change within your organization.
